We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control.

Pseudonymous, Non-Personal Processing of Data

Applicable German and EU legislation permits analyzing usage data on a pseudonymous (i.e. not personally identifiable) basis in order to improve the quality of an online service, for market research and for advertisement purposes. However, this is permitted only on an opt-out basis.

Below we would like to inform you how we deal with cookies and server log files in order to improve the quality of our services and how you can opt-out:


When you visit our website, our web server sends a cookie to your computer or mobile device (as the case may be). Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer or mobile device (as the case may be) when you visit a website and which store and sometimes track information about your use of the website. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the website and will last for longer.

The acceptance of cookies is not a condition for visiting our website. However, the proper functioning of the website could be impaired if the cookie function is deactivated.

No personal data is stored in the cookies used by us. The cookies which we use can therefore not be assigned to any specific person and hence not to you either. When the cookie is activated, an identification number is allocated to it. An assignment of your personal data to this identification number is not possible. On the basis of cookie technology, all we receive is anonymized information, for example about which pages of our website have been visited, which entry fields have been completed, etc.

In individual cases it is permitted for our partner companies to collect, process or use data from our website in the form described above by means of cookies. This applies in particular to the web analytics or social media services named below.
In addition, data will be collected on the basis of cookie technology in order to optimize advertising and the entire range of our online services. This data too will not be used in order to identify you personally but will only serve to produce an anonymous evaluation of the use of the services.

We use the services of a few partners who help us to design the service and our website. Therefore, when you visit our website, cookies from partner companies will also be stored on your hard disk. These are temporary/permanent cookies which are automatically deleted after the pre-set time (see above). The cookies of our partner companies do not contain any personal data either. Only pseudonymous data is collected by means of a user ID.

You can choose a setting in your browser, which allows the storage of cookies conditionally upon your consent. If you only want to accept our cookies but not the cookies from our service providers and partners, you can select the setting “Block third-party cookies” in your browser. Generally there will be a display via the Help function in the menu list of your web browser telling you how to reject new cookies and disable ones already received. With shared-use computers, which are set to accept cookies and flash cookies, we recommend that you always sign out completely after the end of a session.

Server Log Files

Each time you access the pages of our website, usage data is transmitted by the relevant internet browser and stored in server log files. The datasets stored in this case contain the following data: date and time of retrieval, name of the page accessed, IP address, referrer URL (the source URL from which you accessed our website), the volume of data transmitted plus product and version information about the browser used.

The user’s IP addresses are deleted or anonymized after the end of use. Anonymizing means that the IP addresses are altered in such a way that the particular details about personal or factual circumstances cannot be assigned to a specific or identifiable person, or only at disproportionately high expense in terms of time, costs and manpower. We evaluate the log file datasets in anonymized form in order to improve our range of services on our website and make it more user-friendly, to locate and eliminate errors more quickly and to control server capacities.

Your rights

In accordance with the regulations of Federal Data Protection Act, you are entitled to receive information about your personal data stored, its origin, its recipients and the purpose of storage and have the right to correct, block or delete this data.
You may permanently revoke the consent you granted us at any time.

You may notify us informally to exercise your rights:
